Essential oils and migraines: any tips?

I started getting chronic migraines a few years ago. I’ve tried several preventative and acute pharmaceutical medications, but most come with side effects. Because of this I have been looking into more natural ways of relieving the debilitating pain that inevitably happens.

Meditation, yoga stretches, vitamins, and essential oils. It’s not an instant cure but it does help A LOT. I am slowly but surely making lifestyle changes to be a better, healthier me.

I’ve tried some basic essential oils already–lavender, peppermint oil, eucalyptus–using them occasionally to ease aches and nausea. Which essential oils do you use?

Most recently, I purchased the necklace featured above at, making it convenient to wear essential oils all day. It’s basically a portable mini-diffuser. You just add a few drops of your favorite essential oil(s) into it and you’re ready to go! What would you wear with it?

I’m so excited to wear this necklace as part of my wellness journey. I plan on accessorizing my yoga outfits with it, which is a lot, because I practically live in yoga pants. The necklace comes with 8 colorful refill pads so you can match it with different outfits.  It comes in a cute pouch too, making it easy to give as a present. It’s back-to-school season and you probably know someone who can use a little aromatherapy stress relief in their life. I know I can.

Do you have any advice about migraines or aromatherapy in general? Would love to hear your stories too!

    I also tend to live in yoga pants! Best outfit there is! Oils have really helped with my migraines. I would be so curious how the necklace turns out. It’s something I’ve been debating.

    I’ve been dealing with migraines from the age of 18 and honestly the best thing I’ve found is lavender. I have a lavender eye pillow that I use when I feel one coming on. I practice deep breathing and sometimes try to nap with it on and that usually helps.
    I’ve never heard of that necklace before but it sounds interesting. You’ll have to let us know if it helps!

    Young Living has an oil called M-grain, it works well. Also peppermint and lavender rubbed on your temples, behind ears, and on the back of your neck helps me.

    I have suffered from migraines since I was 5. These oils don’t work miracles and the migraine is magically gone, but it does bring it down to a manageable level.
